Overall Satisfaction with Box

Box is used by all researchers in my organization to manage confidential participant data. It is essential in maintaining the privacy of our research subjects and complying with ethics board review policies. It is used by everyone at the University of South Florida who is engaged in confidential research that is monitored by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Our university previously used a private VPN, and we've used Google Drive as well before. At a previous university, I had experience with Dropbox. While I was unhappy about the switch to Box at first (change is always hard), Box seems superior in ease of use and collaboration abilities.
Box is fantastic if you'd like a strong, secure option for working with data within an organization. It's especially appropriate if you get the Microsoft Office add-on, so you can have multiple individuals editing documents within Box live. It's also well-suited for data that needs a high level of security.
